Principal Associates & Partners
The Club’s Principal Associates are those with who the Club has a formal agreement about goods and services offered to members. These are mutually beneficial partnerships whereby both parties benefit from the association.
All of these companies are recognised by the Club as providers of services which members may want to take advantage of. This in no way obliges Club members to take up such services but those who do will be able to receive personal attention, free advice and, often, discounted rates.

Led by long-time Club member, Tom Hardman, Tom Hardman Limited (THL) have been selling vintage and pre-war road and racing cars from their office in Skipton and their showroom at Foxfields country estate near Clitheroe since 2010.
Having grown up surrounded by vintage machinery from an early age, the world of vintage cars is something very close to Tom's heart. Throughout his formative years the family’s only car was a vintage car; a trusty steed that delivered him safely to school every day until his first day of gainful employment at the age of sixteen!
Since the early days, THL has aimed to build a strong network of clients, both on home soil and internationally. Unusually, Managing Director Tom Hardman hasn’t come from the normal auction house back ground like many of his contemporaries. He is very proud of the good reputation the company enjoys amongst its clients, who happily recommend their services to their friends, colleagues and fellow enthusiasts.
